Default Trading Picks advice

Considering trading 2nd and 3rd round picks for a 1st Rd.

12 team PPR, 3 keepers...

My current keepers...
2nd round - Julio Jones
4th round - Eddie Lacy
5th round - DeSean Jackson

Megatron will supposedly be made available at the end of the season since that team doesn't have the 1st round pick to keep him. So trying to trade to get the 2nd pick in the draft...not sure if I will even be succesful in executing.

So would you trade your 2nd and 3rd round picks for a 1st? Am I crazy? Would someone be crazy to trade their 1st round pick for an extra 2nd and 3rd?

If I can make the move, I believe the guy with the 1st pick in the draft will take Adrian Peterson. That will leave me with the following as a starting point...

WR - Julio Jones
WR - DeSean Jackson
WR - Calvin Johnson
RB - Eddie Lacy

Picks wise I would be left with 3rd round, 4th round, and 5th round... keeping in mind this is a 17rd draft.

Oh... we are set up at this as far as active players:
QB
WR
WR
RB
RB
TE
FLEX
K
D/ST

The key is to get 6th place so you can have 1st pick

I'll probably end up trying to trade Calvin for a 4th (since it would cost them the pick plus their 1st round slot)

As far as starting for next year tho your sitting pretty

What do you mean by this? I'm slightly confused. But yes, I'm going after your bench player. LOL

I mean if at the end of the season you trade me a 4th round pick for Megatron in essence your using your 1st and 4th pick on him. Which makes it hard to trade players for picks. Megatron is clearly a top 5 player in 1/2 PPR (Megatron, AP, Mccoy, Dez, Charles) but what do you think is fair value for trading for him at the end of the season to use as a keeper?
I wonder if I could possibly get a 2 for Calvin and keep Marshall?

Having Keepers definitely adds more intrigue and prowess in making trades!

Haha it definitely would!
Plus right now it'd be hard pressed to trade Calvin as he is healing up and is set to show up Dez!
